Our scripture memorization for this month includes 3 Nephi 12:44-45 and two quotes from Joseph Smith about love and kindness. We still review our yearly scripture (Matthew 26:21-22). The poem and quote on the side are Peter and Anna’s school class memorizations for this month (Emily Dickinson’s “Hope is the thing with feathers” and Statue of Liberty quote).
These quotes are on the inside bathroom door, which location lends itself to quick reviews several times a day!
This morning, before we were going to go walking, Lane told the children that if they would jump out of bed and get their Saturday jobs done quickly, we’d all go to Magleby’s for French toast. WOW! That’s a special occasion around her (eating out and Magleby’s …

Then each week I hand out the little quarter page verse for them to stick on the microwave or bathroom mirror or wherever, to help them memorize the verse. (You can find the quarter page PDFs here.)
We pass the verse off at the beginning of class each week.
My family bookmark is a little different, but we’re doing the same scriptures as my Primary class.
This takes some work to prepare, but I feel satisfied each time a child proudly recites a verse they’ve learned that week, and I think of how those words of wisdom will help that child the rest of his or her life!
